AI016 Tape Interface

The AI016 Eurorack Tape Echo Interface is a Limited Edition Module that allows you to use a standard three head tape recorder as an analog tape echo unit.

The AI016 Eurorack Tape Echo Interface is a Limited Edition Module that uses a pre-amp and buffered feedback loops to allow a standard three head tape recorder as an analog tape echo.

The tape recorder must have three heads (erase, record, and play) for it to work as a tape echo. This type of tape recorder will have a button or switch that allows the monitoring of the source audio, or what has just been recorded to the tape. The space between the record and play head creates the delay, and the Tape Interface feeds back into the unit to create repeats.

The AI016 provides the following tape controls:

Mix
Repeats
Input and Output Controls
Delay time is controlled by the tape deck. Not all tape decks allow speed control while recording, and modifications may be needed.
